Sliders can be created like any other object. I can't recall their exact 
name at the moment, but looking at the raw text of a patch with a slider 
in it would reveal that quickly enough. All their parameters can be set 
by sending them messages as well, and parameters can be set as arguments 
to the creation of the object. the X_GUIs help file has stuff on that 
IIRC. Sorry, it's been a while since I made a PD patch, but I assure you 
that sliders can be treated just like regular objects.
